Right now libguestfs inspection typically only works if running virt-manager
as root which is certainly not common. So I think showing a warning in this
case is not the best idea since it will be there for the vast majority of
users. Please drop the warning.

Also, even if the python bindings are available, we may fail to inspect
anything at all because libguestfs can't access the disk image.. Please ensure
the UI is hidden in the case when inspection fails like this.
